The New, Convoluted Life Cycle Of A Newspaper Story

Journalist Lauren Rabaino examines newspaper workflow models that incorporate social media and other online tools, and offers examples and suggestions for making multi-platform coverage more reader-friendly.

News must be really hard to follow for an everyday consumer of a newspaper website. First tweets go out, sometimes with no links to additional coverage. Then a few grafs go up on a blog, followed by additional updates, either to the top of that post or as new posts. Eventually, a print story gets started, which is posted through an entirely different workflow onto a different-looking story page.
